A step out of the cold into this hut and you realise you have stepped into the tiniest museum. A quaint little find that is definitely worth a look.

Can probably only hold 3 or 4 people at a time but was interesting to read the history and all the little bits and pieces. A lovely little stop off close to the beach.

I would not rush to view this so called museum - it is a hut with a few posters on the wall and a great view across the River Aln.

This is just a tiny boatman's shed but they've turned it into a great little mini museum. There are bits and pieces on the walls but take a few minutes to read the books and newspaper articles provides - some fascinating insight to the area....More

this was just a short walk from where we were staying. a sweet little spot that would enable a busy person to catch up with themselves again. thoroughly recommended as a place to watch the estuary.

Novelty or not, the location is lovely, looking across the harbour to Church Hill, the bench with Tennyson quote is charming, and the past it memorialises is worth remembering.

A little shed, with interesting photos and a bench to sit on with a stunning view! Worth the short walk around Alnmouth, as it is just so unique!

It is really a hut but the view from this spot of the river and its boats is for cameras. Had a stroll around and took many photos for competitions. Well worth a visit

It's a hut! Well loved, with a few historic pics and character histories with themed decor. Tiny but fun.
